Syncing images with laptop and PC

Postby NNN636454819437657785 » Sun Dec 23, 2018 6:08 pm

How do I go about syncing my images with my laptop and PC after I work on or the other? Would I have to use my external HD after working on files on my laptop if I then want to work on the same file on my PC? I don't think this is a cloud base software!

Laptop and PC are the both working with Windows? There are many different scenarios possible. It depends on your exact requirements like do you want a one way sync or a full two sync.

For example, you work with sessions. You can transfer sessions back and forth between computers.

Another example: you work with sessions. You store images on an external drive and open them from one computer at a time.

Variation: instead of an external drive, use Dropbox or similar cloud storage.

Many Thanks, Dropbox seems to be the one for me at the moment

I have MAC's and I can just drag and drop from my laptop to the PC without and external hard drive, then once on my Imac I move to the NAS I have setup. But dropbox or google drive works well also :)

No, but google drive gives me trouble anytime I've either uploaded a file over 2gb or had a client download over 2gb in one download.
